Comic book inker (which we all know is just a tracer) Dick Ayers died at the spry age of 90.

Dick started out penciling strips such as “Funnyman” and a Jimmy Durante humor strip.  He graduated to ink in time to work on “The Fantastic Four.”

Circumstances surrounding Ayers’ death are shrouded in mystery.  One thing was definite, he died of complications stemming from exposure to…. cosmic radiation!!!!

Ayers fulfilled his life long dream to get plastic surgery to look like The Thing.

Some sources say that he yelled “Flame on!” as his last words and immediately burst into flames.  The fire, obviously, burned him up in a painful death.

Some sources say that his body started to bend in strange and mysterious ways.  This, of course, liquefied his inner organs resulting in a painful death.

A few sources claim that he turned to stone, like he looked at Medusa.  A process that, obviously spurned a long, painful death.

Some claim that he simply turned invisible and is not really dead but moving into a condo with Jim Morrison and Elvis.  

One even crazier theory is that he died from radiation poisoning.  Frickin’ wacky conspiracy theories…

In the end, we here at Ghoul Pool headquarters believe in one of the theories that has him occupying the casket.  (Guess which one we believe!)

And, coincidentally, this hit goes to: Occupy the Casket!  Yes, Pirate jumps into a tie with Babysitter and me.  Which, as we all know, is nothing to write home about.

Happy pooling,
